Democracy Day Class 2

On International Democracy Day, the children learned about what democracy means. They all had the chance to write a speech to their classmates if they would like to be put forward as a candidate for Pupil Parliament. Two girls and two boys from each year group were voted for. They then had to make a speech in front of all the children I the school, who then voted for the candidate of their choice. Successful candidates in Year 1 were Anthony and Nicole and in Year 2, Charlie and Phoebe. They will represent Class 2 in the Pupil Parliament meetings.
